Romance, roses and ridiculously cold weather!

We had the most amazing day last week posing for the very talented photographer Shaneen Rosewarne Cox for our new publicity shots and Christmas album cover!

We were honoured to be wearing beautiful evening dresses for the shoot which were designed by internationally renowned fashion designer Johanna Hehir. Our hair was styled by the amazing Sarah of Sarah's Doowopdos and make up done by fab make up artist Christina Chrysanthou. We were very lucky to have the use of Shaneen's blogging partner Hayley's house to get ready in and had the bonus of an impromtu lesson from her in social media networking!

The day of the shoot was not what we had initially had in mind for the start of spring: arctic temperatures, snow and gale force winds do not mix well with notoriously unstable harps. However, we were excited by the possibilities this would afford us for the Christmas album cover so all was not lost.

We took the first series of photos outside in our beautiful chiffon dresses:
We think it is safe to say that we have never been so cold in our lives! We stuck at it for as long as we could but once Keziah was so cold she was unable to open her mouth to speak we thought it was a sign to head indoors to thaw out and set up some more shots with the harps.

We were using the village hall for our indoor shots and had a lot of fun coming up with some creative poses using the harps. We have always found it a challenge in the past to get a photo which includes all four harps and 4 girls in a way that is interesting to look at (four harps take up a lot of photo space!), so we were very pleased with the end result:

It was lovely and relaxing lying on the floor for these photos after having been so cold outside earlier in the day.

We then changed outfits for some atmospheric shots wearing dark blue romantic dresses standing behind some beautifully flickering silver candles. We ended the day with a final outfit change into shorter more informal dresses in wonderfully contrasting colours. We had so much fun we were even happy to brave the outdoors for one final shot:
